#9 - Birdie

Birdie, 6" x 6" oil on paper, © 2012, Nancy Van Blaricom

I found this little ceramic bird in a second hand store years ago.  Something about the bird appeals to me and I've kept it in my studio just waiting to find the right time to paint it.

I sat it on a small cardboard box I had laying around in the studio.
My goal today was to use large brushes only.  I used a 10 & a 6 flat, and was happy that I was able to accomplish that and not go any smaller.

When I found I was starting to put more detail in I stopped.

I'm happy with this one.

Maybe  tomorrows goal will be large brushes AND big bold shapes,  today just using larger brushes made me happy.
